    There are no phone lines open to Customer support with so many working from home. Here is deaths of how to contact customer support by Chat or Email

    Hi @Rickuk2020

    Welcome to the Community! The team pushed a Navcore update on your device, please do a soft reset on the device login and check for updates when connected to a WiFi internet connection. Once the device is rebooted after the update, log off from MyDrive on the device and test to see if it's still happening.

    Regards, lampard

    Hi,
    If you keep digging the posts here then you will find there are many users (including me) have the same problems and still waiting for the solution.
    I think TomTom should pay more attentions on improving their NavCore.

    Hi
    @Rickuk2020
    Welcome to the site....

    It looks like Recovery Mode has initialized on your device....

    When the device is in Recovery Mode... The device MUST be connected to your PC using the supplied USB Cable with MyDrive Connect running in the background for the Recovery process to complete....

    MyDrive Connect must be running on your PC, and be capable displaying as CONNECTED on MyDrive Connect...

    Installing MyDrive Connect....
    Here... https://help.tomtom.com/hc/en-gb/articles/360013959499-Installing-MyDrive-Connect

    See Tomtom FAQ... Navigation device not starting or displaying a cross....
    I think the device is somewhere between bullet-point (7) & (8)
    See... https://help.tomtom.com/hc/en-gb/articles/360013959579-Navigation-device-not-starting-or-displaying-a-cross

    Once Recovery Mode is initiated, and if a connection to MyDrive Connect has NOT established....
    Recovery Mode will continue to attempt to connect to MDC until the Server eventually times-out
    Any attempts at a Restart... The device, will continue to display a Splash screen with image of a PC and a Red Cross or a Screen displaying a spinning disc, until Recovery mode can establish a connection to MyDrive Connect or the Server eventually times-out....
